PART 5 – Michael Penfold preaches on the 4th Commandment. He lists 6 reasons why God gave the Sabbath. He proves that the Saturday Sabbath was a ceremonial, not a moral law, and that it was not instituted until Sinai. It was a “shadow” that gave way to the “substance” at the coming of Christ. He also looks at why believers meet on Sundays today, which the Bible calls “the Lord’s Day”. Useful for Seventh Day Adventists or anyone confused about the Sabbath in general (Message preached 13th May 2018)
PART 4 – Jonathan Black preaches on “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain”. He takes the subject up under three headings: 1. The meaning of God’s name in Hebrew (Jehovah, Elohim and Adonai); 2. The mention of God’s name at Horeb (Sinai); and 3. The misuse of God’s name – our holiness. He lists 7 ways in which it is possible to take God’s name in vain today. A challenging message! (Message preached 6th May 2018)
PART 3 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the 2nd commandment – “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images” etc. He explains the difference between the 1st and 2nd commandment before contrasting true worship with false worship. Not only is the worship of idols prohibited, but worshipping the true God through idols is also prohibited. God, the supreme, sovereign, self-existent Creator is a jealous God – He desires, deserves and demands worship to Him and Him alone (Message preached 29th Apr 2018)
PART 2 – Michael Penfold outlines God’s essential moral absolutes, that pre-date and post-date the law of Moses, before dealing with the 1st commandment. He outlines the meaning of theism, deism, monotheism, polytheism, pantheism, atheism and agnosticism. He shows why the Roman Catholic Church omits Commandment No 2. Finally he challenges his audience to beware of the subtle but very common idolatry that we can all be so easily guilty of; turning a good thing into an ultimate thing (Message preached 22nd Apr 2018)
PART 1 – Mervyn Hall introduces a series on the “10 Commandments”. He outlines three groups of people – Israel “under law”, the Gentiles “without law” and Christians today “in law to Christ” (from 1 Cor 9). Then he asks three questions: 1. Are Christians obligated to keep the 10 Commandments as Israel did? 2. What was the purpose of the law? and 3. Why study the 10 Commandments? He explains that though the Mosaic law has been abolished, Christians cannot live as they like (Message preached 15th Apr 2018)
